    How much protein do you eat in the run of a day?
    What sources do you get it from?

    :)

    I eat a lot of protein. I think it helps stabilize my blood sugar levels.

    Sources?

    I know eggs aren't the greatest for you, but I fucking love them. Starting my day off with an egg or two makes me feel grrreat.

    I really like eggs for breakfast, veggie and cheese omelettes are so good!

    I've always heard they were really good for you, unless you're eating like five or more everyday. :lol:

    I think it's only people with high cholesterol who have to watch their intake.
    I could be wrong though.

    I try and get about a gram of protein for each lb of my body weight. S0 about 170g per day.

    If I'm trying to pack on muscle, I shoot for 1.5g x lbs.

    Sources? Chicken, turkey, eggs, fish, beef, bison, protein powder, beans (edamame are a delicious snack), nuts, cheese...

    As for eggs, depending on how you like them, you can use just the whites for a few of them to cut back on the fat/cholesterol. Like in an omlette, instead of using three whole eggs, I'll usually use four whites and one whole.

    For the ladies, I also suggest as much semen as you can get in and around your mouth.

    eggs got a really bad rap a few years ago. I dont think they're as bad as people think they are.

    Word. If I'm doing scrambled or whatever I'll do one whole egg and throw in some egg whites.

    MMMM I'm gonna make some eggs right now!

    egg whites have all the protein anyhow
    the yolks have lots of nutrients, but they also have the cholesterol

    I read somewhere that it's good to eat small amounts of egg yolk (such as one in a predominately egg white omelet) because of a certain nutrient but I can't remember for the life of me what it was. I'll have to try to find that article. Apparently it is in high doses in egg yolk but hard to get otherwise.

    True, but theres more too it then just cholesterol levels

    Myth #4: Eggs up your cholesterol
    Fact: For years, this misunderstood food -- low in calories (75), high in vitamins (D, B12, folic acid), and nearly perfect in protein -- was shunned. True, an egg yolk delivers about 220 mg of cholesterol, close to the 300 mg daily cut-off recommended for healthy people. However, heart researchers now think that the mix of fats you eat is more important than the cholesterol in food, plus not everyone seems to be sensitive to it.
    Smart move: If you're lucky enough to have enviable cholesterol counts (HDL above 40 mg/dl, LDL below 100), you can enjoy an egg every day, or a couple of really great omelets a week. Otherwise, check with your doctor about how many eggs you can eat -- you may be in for a happy surprise.

    I usually get about 50-60 a day from whey protein and try to get another 100 from my diet.

    My foods consists usually of mostly chicken,fish and sometimes steak. Most of my meals are usually chicken breasts/veg........


    edit: also, if you are going to be taking alot of protein, make sure to drink lots of water during the day because protein really makes you dehydrated
